--->>Fountain of the Great Lakes by Lorado Taft
<http://www.great-lakes.net/navigate/graphics/fountain.jpg>
The Fountain of the Great Lakes depicts five female figures grouped
together so that water flows from their shells in the same way it passes
through the Great Lake system. Superior, at the top, and Michigan empty
their water into the basin held by Huron, who sends her stream on to
Erie. Ontario receives water and gazes off as it flows into the ocean.
Completed in 1913, the fountain sits in the south wing of the Art
Institute of Chicago. For more about Taft and historical photos of the
fountain, visit the University of Illinois Archives
